How archaeology is practised today
Contemporary Archaeology will feature discussions around current archaeological practice, how archaeologists might now be employed and a Q&A panel with all of the speakers. The symposium will explore these themes for their contemporary relevance:

- Australian Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic archaeology
- Space archaeology
- Australian Indigenous archaeology
- Repatriation of Indigenous remains from overseas

Presented by the Canberra Archaeological Society and the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology, this public symposium is part of the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival.
